I loved Michael's last release "Heroes" and didn't think it could be equalled. This album does it though and is absolutely brilliant. Beautifully produced with some gorgeously lush (though not overpowering) arrangements, every song showcases Michael's wonderful voice.

As with all of Michael Ball's songs, you hear every single word - in fact, sometimes I haven't even properly heard the lyrics of some songs until I hear Michael sing them. As for the voice, with maturity it is getting richer and mellower all the time. Quite faultless.

Treat yourself, buy this album and listen to one of the best singers ever!

Michaels' latest album is for me, a fan who has all his other solo albums, the best by far to date. This CD is perfect for a cosy night in; full of beautifully crafted songs all delivered with class and clarity accompanied with style by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

`Both Sides Now' features a delightful musical arrangement including beautiful saxophone solos by Snake Davis.

`Perfect Song', a new song written by Lord Lloyd Webber and Leslie Bricusse will stay with you after the first listen; such a catchy but lovely song `perfectly' delivered!

`Suddenly', the new song from the Les Miserables Movie is another heartbreakingly beautiful song.

Michael delivers the Dolly Parton classic, `I Will Always Love You' in its original style; staying away from the big belty Whitney Houston version preferring to keep it pared right back which is perfect and again delivered beautifully.

For those of you wanting something a bit more upbeat there are the Leona Lewis classic hit `Run' and another new song given to Michael by Tim Rice from the new musical From Here To Eternity called `Fight the Fight' another great and very catchy tune.

Most albums have the odd song which is skipped on the playlist, not this one; there isn't a bad song on here.

The album closes with a rendition of Love Changes Everything which has been given a new twist and features the operatic vocals of Il Divo this is the perfect album - just buy it!!!

This new album is wonderful - a new maturity and depth to Michael Ball's velvet voice. Some old favourites and some new songs - great mix. "Both Sides Now" has always been a favourite song of mine, but in Michael Ball's reading of the lyrics, it's a whole new song with new insights into the human condition. Extremely pleasing album,and so very good to listen to, over and over again. One of the best album purchases I have made in a long time. It is a great addition to my collection of Michael Ball recordings. I highly recommend this album not only to the legions of Michael Ball fans, but to all those who enjoy beautiful music. Bravo, Mr. Ball!

Wonderful selection; some out of the ordinary routing. Perfect Song is just that, perfect. Excellent follow up to Sweeney, which still makes the hairs stand up on my neck. Easy listening - looking forward to the concert in May.
